I Should Have Stayed In Bed

I had this great plan of taking a midday break to go to the gym and get a good 3+ mile run in. Help reduce stress, do something to counteract Moose and his behavior. All good things, right?

Got changed and drove to the gym. Upon arriving…

SONOFAB…..

*sigh*

Even Picard is disappointed in you.

Sonnek, you disappoint me.

My friend E sympathized and said this was why she packed her gym bag obsessively every night (she goes to the gym at zero-dark-thirty) so that doesn’t happen. But I only take ONE THING to the gym aside from myself: my running shoes.

In the winter months, I don’t wear my running shoes to the gym because of the salt and snow. Besides, most gyms will not let you use their machines if your shoes are wet. Thus, I wear my regular shoes to the gym, then change into my running shoes in the locker room.

Besides, if it’s not winter, I’m running outside!

When I got there today and realized I didn’t have my shoes…I felt like such a bonehead. Mainly because I am a bonehead. I had grabbed my shoes, but apparently I set them on the floor when I put my coat on and neglected to pick them back up. They were sitting there mocking me when I got back home. Stupid shoes.

Here’s hoping attempt #2 after work will go more smoothly. Fingers crossed!

  1. I used to do that all.the.time when I’d (plan to) go to the gym after work. I’d get there and realize I forgot one crucial element (socks, sports bra, shoes, whatever.)
